TALES FROM THE AMBASADORA-VERSE: GREENSHIFT
Greenshift is a novel set in the Ambasadora-verse one month before Ambasadora begins.
DESCRIPTION: David Anlow, a fleet captain forced into early retirement and jaded by an ex-lover, now spends his lonely days shuttling around a group of scientists for hire.
Boston Maribu, Mari to her friends, is one of his passengers, a young botanist who is as beautiful as she is naïve and innocent. When Mari asks David to teach her about more than just piloting the Bard, nights on their ship heat up and their feelings for each other mature into a relationship neither expects. But a suspicious new client shows up with wicked plans for Mari, and the soldier inside David comes alive, ready to fight for the young woman who stole his heart.

Killian and David's brother Ben had had a run-in last year at a bar here at the Hub. What was the name of that overpriced dive? The Atlas or Atlatl or something that started with At. Though David had been there when Ben and Killian went at it, and eventually jumped in by his brother's side, the likelihood of the contractor remembering him was remote.
David could stave off this confrontation a bit longer by heading back to the Bard, make them come knocking at the ship's gangway, but why invite trouble into your home? Though he still hadn't settled into the idea that the pleasure cruiser turned science vessel was home. Maybe in another few weeks.
"Anlow, how's your brother? Did he jump ship, too?" Killian's voice was smooth and confident.
